of things. but they also say that only honest law abiding gunowners will be affected if we, quote, if anyone is attacking firearms and ignoring children. that's not the solution to the crisis we face. of course their position has always been this. clearly that is going to be a very tough battle for the president. and it will rely on many democrats who are in red states and who have felt the full force of the pulleying nra stand up and be counted. are they going to do that? >> i think that the issue remains a very open one in the minds of many of my colleagues because they are hearing from their constituents that we really need to do something about gun violence. in fact, i heard that said to me personally again and again and again in the days that i was in newtown after this horrific tragedy, the days and the weeks that i spent huge amounts of time there. people in newtown, people in connecticut and across the country are saying we have to do something about gun violence. and let's remember, one of the president's proposals actually deals with criminals who try to buy weapons and use straw p
and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch there were phone calls today that they would have been fired. do you agree with that? >> there were a lot of missteps here. we do know that you had said that there was a whisper of questioning susan rice and secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions on why talking points were changed, we know for sure the u.s. intelligence report came out and said extremists that led the attack had al qaeda ties. why was that removed? who removed it? who was in charge of manipulating these talking points. these are questions i wish would have been asked today. >> okay. that's fine. if you're going to take the argument that anyone guilty of misreading intelligence and so on should actually be fired, wher
within tunisia, they're following the rule of law, and as more evidence becomes available they're fully prepared to act on him again. so i think, you know, as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happened in mali recently, what's happened in algeria over the past few days, to understand the evolving throat from al qaeda in the maghreb and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch, there were calls from some people, rand paul and others, that hillary clinton would have been fired over what happened. do you agree with that? >> i do agree with that. i think senator paul was correct in his claims today and how he addressed secretary of state clinton. there were a lot of -- there were a lot of missteps here. we do know -- you had said that there was a whisper of misogyny in questioning ambassador -- or susan rice and then secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions as to who gave the orders to stand down or asking why talking points were changed -- i mean, we absol
the law. >> tonight an unprecedented gathering on business, politics on both sides of the gun debate. dan rather, mark cuban, grover norquist, a texas gun owner who survived a mass shooting and a couple who stopped a thief with a gun of their own. how would you grade the president for his first four years and what da you want to see in the next four? this is "piers morgan tonight." [ applause ] good evening. our town hall is going in a few minutes but we begin with breaking news on another school shooting. this texas three were wounded and two in custody after a shoot-out that apparently resulted from an altercation at the north harris campus at lone star college. joining us is not an eyewitness, he's an emt student who treated two people who were bleeding. he found out later that one of them was a suspected shooter. a very dramatic day, obviously, at the college today. tell me exactly what happened. >> well, i actually was coming out of class, and i had knew that there was a lot of commotion going on, but i wasn't really sure what it was. i asked a couple students and they said there wer
to make it the law of the land and institutionalize it. the presidents hit by the curse. i mean, ronald reagan with the iran-contra scandal. bill clinton had monica lewinski. george bush, katrina. they seem to get unsettled and unraveled by a big event, often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. may be nothing but what he does have, he has at least a green chute to a better economy. he didn't have that four years ago. inherited one of the worst financial messes you could imagine. is that a significant help to him? >> think of second term dwight eisenhower. dealt with the little rock kri sis. nasa. a treaty with 12 countries to demilitarize antarctica. all second term. bill clinton, what he have been without a second term? not a big budget surplus and ronald reagan, i think iran-contra is overblown and historic gorbachev diplomacy and margaret thatcher said reagan ended the cold war without a single shot and the spth feeling good about the second term. he doesn't have the curse mentality. >> what are the priorities, what would you like to see the president fo
it with excellent police law enforcement, they have had stunning results in reducing the gun murder rate and the gun suicide rate? why can't you just accept that that is a fact and say that actually in chicago, there may be many other issues, one of the issues in chicago is that states around chicago, as you know, like indiana, have very lax gun control? gangsters get in their car, load themselves up, and come back. also it may be that the police enforcement in chicago has been nowhere near as effective has it has been in los angeles in dealing with gangs, and has it has been in new york. these are things you should consider, aren't they? before you dismiss there being no gun problem? >> they most certainly are, and i would submit you the problem of children born without fathers is more acute in places like chicago, detroit, cleveland. and those who commit crimes come from households i mentioned. i interviewed the head of the naacp. i said, as the president of white racism or the absence of black fathers, which poses a bigger threat of the black community? he said without missing a beat, the absence
that? >> terrific. my son-in-law, weird. >> this is the daughter with your childhood sweetheart who you never married. >> never married. >> she's now in her late 20s, right, your daughter? >> 28. her birthday was 12-12-12. >> and that moment where she said dad, you're going to be a grandfather, that's got to be a wake-up call. >> as steve martin said, it gave me kaka pants. i knew it was going to happen eventually, but i didn't know it was going to be this soon. it's none of my business when she chose to do that, so i have to be around for the ride and celebrating and cheering her along. and giving her whatever she needs. >> and how are your kids, your boys? >> pretty good. trying to work some stuff out with my mom, but i put everybody in my neighborhood, the girls in one house, the boys in another. we're all behind the same gate. >> denise has the girls. it's civilized? >> pretty civilized, yeah, keeping everybody paid and they'll be happy. >> do you see much of the boys? >> not as much as i planned to or i would like to, but what is really cool is when they come to set. we have a kid
but he's got to make it the law of the land. >> most presidents had been hit by this curse. ronald reagan has the iran contra scandal. they all seem to get unsettled and unravelled by a big event often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. it may be nothing. he has the green shoot for a better economy. hi didn he didn't have that four years ago. is that going to be a significant help to him? >> think about second term dwight eisenhower. he created nasa. he signed a treaty with 12 countries to demilitaryize an antartica. ronald reagan, i think iran contra gets overblown. the president is feeling good about a second term. he doesn't have the luxury of a curse mentality. >> what are your priorities. what would you like to see the president focus on? they say in the second term you get a maximum of about 18 months to shove through the agenda that you want to do. what should he look to do? >> there's all the stuff that's been on the table that's been talked about in the media, immigration reform, gun control and a couple of other issues. i'd like to see him work on
